10 Best Mother's Day Gifts

 Gifts any mom will love!

Do you find it difficult to find the right gift for your mom? I mean mothers play a huge part in our lives. 
They taught us so much, give their all, and love us like no one else. So it seems hard to get a gift that shows you how much she means to you! 

That is why I curated a gift guide for your mom, step-mom, mother in law, grandmother, daughter, friend, or aunt. Most of these brands or items I have tried before, and I can testify that they work or look good!

This gift guide is crafted for the many things that moms are and what they do. These gifts will show how much you know your mom, show her that you see her as a person, and admire all that she does. I promise you that you can find one gift or idea for your mom or even yourself! 

Contains affiliate links in which I earn a small commission for you clicking and or purchasing any of these items. Thank you for your support.

Mother's Day 2021 Gift Guide

I think mother's should be spoiled with wonderful food. Especially desserts that are perfect for spring. This strawberry shortcake cheesecake takes the cake so the speak! It has strawberry preserves and layers of yellow cake.  Then it topped off with whipped cream and strawberry buttercream. I think if your mother enjoys desserts and you don't want to cook this would be a treat for her. 

2. Fresh Sugar Hydrating Balm , Price: $18,  Click Here  and Similar Here 

My mom loves makeup even more than me, especially lip products. This balm gives you 24 hour coverage and gives a natural shine.  

Fresh is perfect because it has natural ingredients that will keep lips smooth and soft. They also have a variety of favors. 

3.Golden Girl's Cook book Click Here 

Me and my mom love this show. We often which it together on Hulu. We love the jokes but we also love how the women were such foodies. They loved cheesecake just as much as we do. I think if your mom enjoys the show and food she would love this cook book. 

I have heard of this brand and always wanted to try it. It is organic and perfect for hydration.  

5. Ninja BL770 Blender & Food Processor, Mega Kitchen System, Click Here 

I have a Ninja bullet and I love it. My parents brought it for me I thought it would be nice to buy one for my mom. She loves to cook and gets tired of cutting sometimes. I thought this would be perfect to help her. 

6. Ari Heart Huggie Hoop Earrings, Click Here 

My mom loves a good hoop earring and this one is very pretty. 

7. Beekman 1802 Super-Size Pot of Gold Whipped Body Cream, Click Here  or Here 

I have been using this product for the while. I used the hand lotion, the hand soap, and body lotion. It helps my skin feel good. It is fragrance free, contains goats milk, and has mango butter. Can be used from the neck to toes. 

8.  Harry & David Spring Classic Moose Munch Popcorn Drum, 24 Oz, Click Here  and Similar

My mother enjoys eating snacks especially popcorn. The drum contains milk chocolate, dark chocolate, and caramel. 

9. Silk Pillow Case, Click Here , similar similar , and here

This would help protect her hair and give her a luxurious sleep. 

10.  Nordstrom, Price: $19.49, Available in multiple Color,   Click Here

Some of us can say that we got our style influence from our mom, grandmother, or even aunt. So we know that what we love they probably would too! This takes some of the pressure of picking out a gift for mom with you to have similar taste in fashion. 

That is why I know my mom would love this peplum tee from Nordstrom. She loves tops that are classic yet stylish. So I know she will love this top. 

Not only is it stylish but it is versatile. This top can be worn with jeans or with a nice pencil skirt. 

11.  Homedics FB-50 Foot Bath, Bubble Bliss,  Click Here 

Want to give your mother an at home spa treatment than buy this. It has heated water and toe touch controls. 

Gift Tip: 

Moms provide so much love and care that sometimes they really do not get the chance to take care of themselves. Give her the gift or gifts that allow her to be pampered. You can even give her a day off, a ticket to go on vacation, or a little hint that you are treating her to a spa. I am sure she will appreciate it! 

Conclusion: Gifts should always display how much you care and know about a person. I know that gifts that show you put some thought into it are the best. Especially when you add a personal post or message to it.  This really shows how much you care and appreciate them. Hallmark has some great inspiration for how to create personal messages for Mother's Day.

What do find is the best gift you gave your mom?

What would be a gift you would love to receive this Mother's Day?

Valentine's Day Gift Guides Under $50

Valentine's Day Gift Guide

Happy New Year! I know we just had a new year and some many not want to hear about another holiday. But as a teacher I have to think ahead. I have already brought and printed out Valentine items for my class. 

Since I have already started shopping and decorating I decided to do a post about some Valentine's Day gifts I have found. 

Galantine's Day for your Bestie 

If you  are single like me you may be trying to figure out what to do for Valentine's Day.  How about getting together with you single friends and have a girls night in. Whether you glam up or dress in your pj's you can a good time with a few of these activities.

  • As women we love to pamper our selves, so why not have a spa night at home. 
  • Pop in  a good movie that you.  Rom Coms would be good but classic movies or friendship themed movies like Clueless, The Women (1939) or The Opposite Sex (remake of The Women), Fried Green Tomatoes, Beaches,or  frenemies like Mean Girls would be different than the typical romantic movie for Valentine's Day. There are whole lot of movies so find the best one for you. 

  • A gift exchange would also be cool thing to do for your besties. Set a budget limit in advance and exchange names. Above are some cute gift ideas!

  • Create the ultimate girl  music playlist and even make copies and send to your friends.
  • There are so many ideas on what you can do that day but have one rule like not talking about your exes. Instead celebrate your status, each other, and your friendship!

I am sorry I have been not active on the blog but being a new teacher has been quite exhausting. Getting my classroom right and having the consultant coming has caused me to be busy. But everything worked out and now I have a little bit of time to focus on my blog. 

Today I decided to do a few gift guides I been wanting to do for a while. Today I am focusing on affordable gift guides for the love ones in your life. 

Gifts for Kids/Teens 

The first ones are for kids and teens. You know the holiday season is really about them. They are the ones that are really exicited for this time of year! 

These gifts include items for the tots and even the young at heart on your list.

Mother's Gift Guide 

Mother's deserve so much more. We can at least get them gets that they will need or want this year. 

Mother's Day Gift Guide

1.Pyrex 21-Piece Bake, Prep & Portable Set • Pyrex • $99.99  My mom has been asking for more storage for her food. So I included this set because I know she can bake, prep, and store items with this Pyrex Set. Plus Pyrex items last for many years! Talk about a good investment.

 Shopping and gifting tips

  Better Deals 

Have a budget and stick with it. Doing so will help you enjoy your Christmas. 
 Always  price compare. Some stores if you bring in an ad from another store that has an item cheaper they will lower that price. 

If you are a member of a certain store club you may earn more discounts. 
If you are veteran or senior citizen you may earn more discounts as well.  

       Gifting Tips 

Make sure you know the size of the person that you are buying for. People grow or lose weight, so not everyone is the same size they were last year. 
When buying for someone buy something that matches their style or personality. 
Always give the receipt to the person you brought the present for. 
Please buy a gift that they can actually take back to the store. By this I mean a store that is nearby where they live at or least in the state the live in.  
Buy an extra gift or two  just in case someone gives you an unexpected gift. Sometimes you may score  extra gift if you take up the offer of buy one get one free. 

Ways to save money

Retailmenot is great source to get discounts and offers on free shipping. Free shipping is something you should look into. Some sites automatically give free shipping but others only do if you buy a certain amount. Do not overspend just to get free shipping.

Only buy things that you love or would be a staple for you.

Always comparison shop you may find the same or similar item for a cheaper price. 

Also sometimes it may be cheaper just to shop at the actually store. I only shop online if the store is not in my state or nearby
